Listing for all Stone Enjoy By xx.xx.xx IPA beers.


You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. While freshness is a key component of many beers - especially big, citrusy, floral IPAs - we've taken it further, a lot further, in this IPA. You see, we specifically brewed it NOT to last. We've not only gone to extensive lengths to ensure that you're getting this beer in your hands within an extraordinarily short window, we made sure that the Enjoy By date isn't randomly etched in tiny text somewhere on the label, to be overlooked by all but the most attentive of retailers and consumers. Instead, we've sent a clear message with the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right now to enjoy this IPA.

Damn near the perfect IPA. I love the hoppy, citrus notes in this beer. It has a nice piney start and grapefruit finish. It is really a role model for IPAs. I'm not enough of a beer "connoisseur" to come up with 250 characters, but I would imagine that most people who can write that much about a beer are more pretentious than I aspire to be.

On tap at Four Points LAX.

A: Radiant apple juice, glowing in crisp light amber

S: Candied citrus. Let this warm slightly, the smell opens into mellow pineapple, piña collada, and passion fruit

T: Sweet orange rind. The bitterness lingers, maybe a tad too long

M: Medium to mild carbonation, on the smoother side of the genre

O: The freshness basks in this beer. A fantastic batch.

poured from a 22 into a pint gass

A: poured from a 22. Looks nice and clean, like it will have great hop flavor. Leaves nice lacing along the whole glass. looks very appealing.

S: Smells like citrus and pine, just what I'd expect form an ipa. The smell leaves with an aftertaste of onions which I'm not so keen about.

T: Taste follow the nose, unfortunately the onion taste overpowers the beautiful west coast IPA
flavors. The citrus and pine are there, but overshadowed by onion. There is a nice bitterness, but still overshadowed by onion. If you hate onions as much as I do maybe you'll agree.

M: Good, medium body. nice carbonation. Feels like it should.

O: Was very excited to try this one, but after having 3 separate brews I have decided to give this one a pass in the future. Too much hype, too much onion.

Had the enjoy by 2.14.14.

Golden color, foamy head, lots of fruit on the nose. Definitely smelling some pineapple and mango in there. Sweet, refreshing, very fruity IPA with a nice bitter finish. Methinks it would be a great summer IPA. Too bad it’s still the dead of winter.

Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with the 05/16/14 "Enjoy By" date right on the label. Served in a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Perfect clear, bright, gold color. It develops a robust head that quickly goes away and leaves just a thin ring. The lacing is incredible, covering the whole glass and slowly sliding away.

Smell: Big citrus, hop aromas of pine, grapefruit and spices attack the nose. The smell is very good and very important to the overall experience.

Taste: The citrusy grapefruit taste is right at the front along with some pine and spicy pepper notes. There's also an alcohol sting at the end thanks to a 9.4% ABV that gets stronger and more noticeable as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. It's smooth and very refreshing when cold. It only gets smoother as it warms up.

Overall: It was a big deal for Puerto Rico's craft beer scene getting this. Believe the hype, it's simply incredible in every aspect. Hophead or not, you need to give this beer a try. It should be noted that in order for this beer to be enjoyed fully it should be had slowly. The taste and texture both change the warmer it gets.

An excellent and we'll balanced DIPA. A fresh and pleasant scent, hinting at fruit. It does not disappoint at first taste, exploding with heavy fruit, especially grapefruit, and plenty of upfront hops. A bit of maltiness helps balance the brew, and masks the alchohol. The perfect amount of bitterness on the finish. Very impressive, reminiscent of Bells HopSlam. My second bomber, and not my last.

"You have in your hands a devastatingly fresh double IPA. Freshness is a key componenet of many beers- especially big, hoppy IPAs- but we've taken it further, a lot further with this one. We brewed this IPA specifically NOT to last. We've gone to extensive lengths to ensure you get your hands on this beer within an extraordinarily short window, and we've sent a very clear message in the name of the beer itself that there is no better time than right NOW to enjoy this IPA!" Brewed in the style of an American Double IPA. First released in late 2012, this is a beer that comes around in small batches with a clear date printed on the bottle to consume by. This review covers the 04.20.14 batch compared to a 02.14.14 batch (roughly 2 months out of date) for a comparison on how fast a beer like this could fall off.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a tulip glass. Served north of 52º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a pastel white frothy cream head over a golden amber body with a mild haze and meager carbonation. Retention is very nice and lacing is medium thin and tiered. 4.25

(Smell) Aroma is rich with hoppy complexity; piney, herbal and resinous with a bold grapefruit aroma and a bite of spicy hop character for an aggressive hop front. Lesser hop notes include tropical fruit and earthy hop notes and the hop bitterness is bold in the aroma. Malt presence is slightly milder led by a syrupy grain caramel and a moderate cracker and biscuit malt sweetness. The aroma of this beer overall is phenomenal on the hop front, there's just so much to behold and the complexity is so rich, the potential for these characters to rapidly fade may be the main drive behind the dates on these bottles. 4.5

(Taste) The malt profile was a bit overstated in its sweetness from the aroma. In the flavor, it is very rich in flavor and body but the sweetness is muted and mellow. The hop profile is very forward with herbal and resinous hop character with a strong bitterness. Although the flavor is very similar to the aroma, I didn't pick up on as many hop subtleties as I did in the aroma, or they aren't as well carried into the flavor as I had hoped. The finish is distinctively herbal with a touch of hoppy must and pepper before trailing with long-lasting tropical fruit. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is mildly chewy, oily, slick. Carbonation makes for a soft, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Body is medium/high for a Double IPA and medium/high amongst all beers. Balance is bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is mild, masked by the assertive hop character. 4.25

(Overall) While the malt profile of Enjoy By IPA is nothing special, the real bravado is that of the hops on display- so many flavors and subtleties that listing them all may exceed my character limit. One of the most enthusiastic and adventurous DIPAs you can get on the market, Enjoy By manages showcases the hop flavor potential in all its glory. It's highly recommended that you go out of your way to pick up at least one bottle. 4.25

Notes on the 02.14.14 batch, 2 months, 6 days past enjoy by date:

A trained eye can immediately notice a difference in clarity at this date, as the beer is far more hazy, the retention poorer and the carbonation more prevalent. The aroma is also different; while the hop profile is nearly as potent as before, many of the more herbal hop notes are fading and the more predictable Double IPA notes of citrus, piney resin and tropical fruit are thus gaining ground. The flavor of this batch is slightly sweeter and more balanced with the hops than the fresh batch, and the hop notes of herbal, grapefruit and resinous hops are still incredibly bold but collectively not as sharp and bright as those of the fresher batch. The mouthfeel is nearly the same although I much prefer the balance of sweetness to hops in this batch in particular. I recognize it could be a batch inconsistency, but the carbonation plays much better with some pairing malt substance and sweetness to back it up. To the novice craft enthusiast, there aren't severe enough differences to make drinking Enjoy By on time mandatory, so don't fret if you miss the date by a month or so. To the seasoned palate, understand that this beer loses an exponential part of its hop potency from the moment it's bottled, so it's worth trying one as soon as you can and not to hesitate. I preferred the fresher batch by nearly every measure, so it's not just marketing- them hops are truly fragile!

Enjoy by 4/20/14 ipa
I poured this into a ipa glass, it has a golden color body with a small sticky head. The aroma has a pine and citrus coming from it. The taste has a bitter hop of pine up that's hits the tongue. I get a little citrus also. The mouthfeel is sticky and leaves a sticky hop taste on the tongue. Overall this is excellent dipa.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed 9 days after being bottled. Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Dogfish Head oversized snifter.

Alloy orange to amber gradient, day-bright and topped with a magnolia collar surrounding an archipelago-like surface slick. Fine sandy lacing, moderately sticky yet fast running legs. Decent retention.

The profusion of hops utilized is immediately apparent in the nose, a frontal assault that begins the moment you pop the cap and becomes a nearly overwhelming wave of tropical fruit, citrus, and fresh herbs when poured into the glass. The individual notes are name-able (passion fruit, lemongrass, orange marmalade, garlic chives...the list goes on for ages), but are insufficient in themselves to convey the impression that the full olfactory constellation has upon your senses. The intimidating list of hops in the kettle is such a melange that I was fearing an unworkable muddle, but the cohesion is remarkable. Nearly stunning.

The herbaceous and spicy hop notes are surprisingly to the front of the palate - much more so than all the fruit from the nose would lead you to expect. The peppery bitterness melds with a potent malt backbone, though without too much specialty character to get in the way of the hops. Potent bitterness gives way to an equally potent burst of fruit fading to an earthy acidity in the finish. While not exactly fulfilling the promise of the nose - the flavors serve as a great foil to your expectations.

Medium mouthfeel - faintly oily yet a touch prickly at the same time. Precisely calibrated to deliver the maximum flavor without sacrificing refreshment.

As I brew more from home, I buy less and less beer - and appreciate more those beers that I am unlikely to be able to reproduce. The complexity and expense of the recipe used to create this ale, along with the assuredness of craft on display make me willing to part with $8 for a bomber without complaint. Far superior to Double Bastard in my opinion - one of Stone's best efforts to date - a pure and uncompromising example, in rare company in the style.

Enjoy By 4.20.15

Bomber into Dogfish "IPA" glass.

Still looks pretty. Hazy light golden color. Nice retention, not much lace.

A spicy, diesel-like smell (referred to last year as "dankness") predominately with some floral-citrus backing.

Tastes encompassing the aforementioned diesel and citrus, as well as a bit of pine, hop bitterness, and alcohol. Not especially so of any specific quality however – they're all blended together.

Feel is practically flawless. Wet and juicy, yet not at all thick and heavy as one would expect with that combination. Neither too light nor too heavy. Very difficult to drink slowly.

Overall I don't think this year was quite as piney as last; the "dank", "diesel" smell overpowering it this time around. Probably a good thing however considering the brew's apparent motto.

Enjoy By 4.20.14

Bottle into over-sized wine glass.

A - Medium density, 2-finger, light-cream head. Dissipates to be fairly loose and frothy. Moderate lacing. Light to medium amber in color. Quite spectacular, rather intense and seems to almost glow. Almost totally opaque. There is an interesting 'snap' to the carbonation on finishing the pour.

S - A deeper, darker, pine resin, alcohol, "dankness", tropical florals. Surprisingly little citrus for style.

T - Astringent bitter pine. Very little citrus if any. Not complex, but delivers as promised. Very much following smell.

M - Rather abrasive overall generally due to bitterness. Slightly warming, alcohol-type aftertaste. Otherwise smooth, nothing glaring to point out; which is to say its balanced to the point of not noticing it (beyond being a palate-wrecker).

O - "Devastatingly Dank". Yes. Basically delivers on what is expected, and does so very well. I feel it is more hop-focused/forward/centric than other DIPAs, much to its own benefit.

Poured from a bomber into a pilsner glass

A: pours a clear dark gold with a generous white head that settles down quickly and leaves some great lacing.

S: gotta hand it to stone. They picked the piniest hops they could find for this one. Woodsy, maybe a little citrus, but they want this one smelling piney and that's what you get.

T: you get a little bit of the breadiness of the malt right in the front, but it gives way to the pineyness of the hops quickly. The taste of the hops doesn't linger that long though, but the bitterness does. Lot going on with this one.

M: heavy, which you expect out of a 9.8% beer, but not unpleasant. It taste as so good that you want it lingering for as long as possible. It's huge but balanced.

O: I've been off IPAs for a little while now. Not due to any sort of protest. Just making an effort to try some new stuff that's out there. So maybe it's just the fact that I haven't had many recently, but this is the best IPA I can remember drinking. It's huge, but absolutely balanced from beginning to end. I'll be stocking up on this one for the next month or so.

Enjoy by 4.20.14. Poured into a snifter. Drinking it on 4.18.14. Making it close, but I had two previously, as early as late march.

Pours an amber with a finger heard because poured aggressively, it dissipates, but leaves a ring of bubbles. Looks great
As the bottle says, devastatingly dank. The freshness of the hops is unreal. I'd have to guess cascade hops.
Taste matches the aroma. As if it came right off the bright tank. Resin and grapefruit come to mind.
Despite being a well filtered beer, it has the mouthfeel of a beer that is bottle conditioned. Well carbonated, but has a lingering aftertaste.
Overall, this is a very special beer. I will definitely purchase Enjoy By ___ in the future.

A - Pours a golden amber with a one-finger white head. Nice amount of lacing.

S - Lots of sweet citrus - mango, orange, & pineapple.

T - Follows the smell with sweet citrus. After the sweetness there is a big punch of earthy piney hops. Finish has a lingering bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp with a sticky and dry mouthfeel.

O - Very nice DIPA. Very smooth and drinkable.

Serving type: Bottle. 4/20/14. Poured into a tulip glass.

Great golden yellow coloration. Pure white 1/4" head. Slightly cloudy.

Nose immediately picks up citrus and fruity aromas ; definitely lives up to the "devastatingly dank" hype labeled on the neck of the bottle.

Extremely flavorful and emulates the aroma of the beer. Bold citrus flavors are elevated above the bitterness often associated with IPAs. A little "sting" is pervasive throughout each sip from the relatively high alcohol content, but it only adds to the dept of this beer's flavor profile.

Not necessarily full, but not light by any stretch of the imagination. Carbonation provides that iconic tingly sensation on the lips with each swig. Only issue here is that it took away from the initial flavor of the beer; all you could feel was tingling and couldn't even register the front-end of the flavor.

Absolutely fantastic Double IPA that, even bottled, is the personification of what this style of beer should be. It was a fresh beer that stands apart from the rest of Stone's line-up, which is generally overrated and readily available at many bars and liquor stores in my general area. I would recommend this specific brew to anyone that enjoys hoppy beers.

Great, strong IPA from start to finish....not everything is a perfect score, but this comes pretty darn close. Love the piney taste to this one. Lots left on the palate so i suggest drinking this one last or by itself. I had the 4.20.14 batch and I am reviewing based on that.

Pours very clear yellow with touches of orange. Smell is citrus, hops, coriander. Taste is freaking fantastic, fresh, hoppy, grapefruit, subtle bitter, and the alcohol is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is so smooth and silky, with nice carbonation.

Overall, probably the best IPA I've ever had. Bitter but finishes nice and sweet.

Definitely dank! Smooth hoppy bite and subtle bitter aftertaste. Enjoyed in a standard pint glass right at 40 degrees over the course of 45-50 minutes. I got more hops as it warmed to room temperature. Solid IPA and I look forward to the next installment in the series.

The Stone Enjoy by Series is, for me, becoming one of the best beer series ever. The most recent addition is the Enjoy by 4.20.14 and I think that it's the best one so far. It's very smooth and crisp IPA. I bought this for my Dad for his birthday in a growler and as soon as we were done 64oz he was asking me to go get him another one! My Dad is not a huge IPA guy so the fact that he liked this so much showed me how good this brew was/is, I was unable to operate a vehicle after a few of these due to the 9+ ABV. He said he'd try and go the next day.

4.20.14 bottled 3/13/14. Poured into a large snifter and enjoyed over an hour.

A - What more could you want in a beers appearance? On this one maybe just some chunkier lacing. Bright orange, slight copper tinge that glows in the glass and is capped with a 1 finger bright white head. Nice thin lacing on the glass as you drink.

S - Dank? Hell yes. Big citrus and peach notes, pine, slight caramel, more pine notes, floral and herbal undertones. Citrus distinguishes itself as grapefruit and orange.

T - Follows the nose, big citrus flavors of mostly grapefruit send some orange cutting in. Peach rounds it out and is prominent with the citrus notes. Just enough caramel like sweetness to cut through the bitterness. Piney, resinous, dank and citrusy. The flavor is so bold and big my palate was shot at the end of this bomber. Bitterness was perfect, right where I'd like my DIPA. Spot on for me. Only criticism, little hot, that 9.4% ABV comes through as it warms and it does detract a bit.

M - Fuller side of medium body. Nice carbonation that carries the flavor and a coating body with a crisp semi dry finish. Could be cleaner, this beer hung around after each sip.

O - A spot on DIPA, guaranteed fresh, and amazing balance. With a cleaner finish and maybe a lower ABV this could be a Heady killer. Either way, it's a world class DIPA.

Pours bright crisp golden yellow. Inch or so of head. Light lacing and retention.

Very tropical. Lots of fruit and sweetness. A bit dank and heavy.

Similar to nose, although more dank and resin like. Tropical fruit dominates. Light citrus. Faint malt.

Fairly easy. Never overpowering from the bigger malt profile. Drinks easy and almost a bit light.

Never got old, booze was hidden really well. Complex.

Holy shitballs! Maybe I drank the Kool-aid on this one, I was hesitant of all the great reviews, but this beer is all that and more. I have become a fullblown hop addict I guess?

Color: Dark almost red golden color. Bronze?

Smell: This is where they get ya! This beer has about the best nose I have ever experienced. Its piney, fruity hop brilliance at its finest. Shall I say pine, bubble gum, and tropical fruit, juicy fruit gum perhaps? Then there is the dank, oh the dank. I love earthy dankness I guess.

Taste: This is bitter, but smooth, hoppy as hell, but just wonderful. I detect pine, grapefruit and other citrus fruits. This is what an IPA should taste like people! I know I am using a lot of punctuation to describe this beer, but what have I been missing out on? I have drank a lot of IPA's and DIPA's as of late and this one is the best I have had. I have never given a perfect score on a beer and I don't know if there is such an animal but this one is about as close as I have ever given. I just hope it doesn't become as hard to find as some of those others, which by the way I have never been able to get my hands on. So, maybe those are 100 beers. This one, is really really close to being my all time favorite IPA though. One complaint, at 9.4% you can't drink but one.

Wow, was really surprised by how good this beer is. Not a big fan of Stone but was really impressed by this IPA. Definitely on par with some other great IPAs like Pliny. Even more surprising is that this one was sold at Costco. Looking forward to more bottles next month.

Poured into a snifter. Enjoy by 4/20.

3.75 A: Light to moderately hazed copper color. Just about one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention wasn't great, but I did pour it somewhat cold.

4.25 S: Big floral hoppiness to start. Notes of cat piss, grapefruit, pine resin, and orange and mango fruits. Really clean, which is how I like my DIPAs these days. Mild neutral maltiness with a hint of toasty caramel.

4.5 T: Again big hoppiness in this. Floral, some herbalness, piney, grapefruit are the strong flavor. Cat piss, citrus, and earth are underneath. Again clean neutral malts with light caramel.

4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.

4.25 D: Overall, a damn good DIPA. I haven't had one in a long time that impressed me, but this does.

Location: City Swiggers
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Amber to Orange in color. Pours with a pinky size white head and excellent retention. Lots of carbonation is rising to the top of the beer.
Aromatics: The fruit is an instant aroma hit on this beer, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit and peaches just shoot through the nose. Some honeyed sweetness hidden in there as well.
Flavor: This beer starts with all it's sweet fruits and by the end moves right into its hop resins. Just an absolutely beautiful example of a DIPA.
Mouthfeel: The beer tastes creamy and smooth until the hop resin starts kicking in at the finish.

A: Great light yellow orange color with good clarity. Really nice white head with amazing lacing and good long retention that sticks to the glass
S:Great smell with a lot of citrus followed by some piney hops with a slight malt
T: One of the best. A hop bomb of nice citrus,piney flavors but with a slight malt background to balance the bitter. My favorite part of this beer is the delicious aftertaste that you can taste for quite some time. This beer is really easy to drink and impressive with its high abv.
M: This beers only downside with slighty to much carbonation and a sticky feel.

Edit: just had the 7/4/14 edition and was like a completely different beer not very good and a much more harsh taste

ReReview of the 12/26/14 edition. One of my favorite ipas ive ever had delicious hoppy, citrusy, fresh taste with some amazing aftertaste and very easy to drink. Hard to describe the dank taste you get.
